Leeds Library

Leeds International Festival is a celebration of new ideas and innovation. World leading thinkers, creators, and pioneers come to Leeds to share new ideas and discuss the world of tomorrow.

For Leeds International Festival 2020 we were asked to create multiple videos to accompany an event discussing the future of narrative. Intended to lead a panel led discussion these short stories explore the importance of Leeds Library and the ways they have preserved information over the years. We explored the special collection of Leeds Libraries, home to around 17,000 rare books and manuscripts dating back to the 15th Century.

Leodis is a photographic archive of Leeds delivered by Leeds library. The online archive is home to over 60,000 images taken in Leeds from 1890-1960.
